    **Jubes**'s Note:

    An elegant dish suitable to serve for company. Simple to prepare. Original recipe was from the Australian Macadamia Society. Serves four as a main meal. I've noticed that my olocal supermarket is now stocking a fairly extensive range of kangaroo cuts.

      This is omg amazing!!!! Both my hubby and I could not stop going on how excellent this was during and after the meal.. This is one of the best sauces I have had in ages with Steak. We can not get kangaroo here although I have eaten it before so I know this would go very well with it . I served this with 2 large beef steak fillets served over sauteed mushrooms and leeks and it was the best dinner ever. I loved that it was so simple to make and my goodness with all the flavour your guests will be thinking you have spent hours in the kitchen. The combo of the wine, pear juice and currant jelly was excellent and it picked up the flavour of the meat nicely when added to the pan. Oh and then having the sliced pears with the macadamias to finish it off it was truly superb!! I know I have gone on a bit but I honestly have not had such a wonderful meal in so long. This is a must for anyone who loves a good steak. A truly perfect recipe Jubes and one that has gone straight up there into my top 10.

      This was a superb recipe. I added a little to much pear juice by accident so balanced it with a tbs of balsamic vinegar, otherwise all done to directions. I will use this glaze again, it was lovely
